Food journalists Tang and Reistad-Long have put together a toothsome collection that covers how to construct a vast assortment of sandwiches, as well as provides something interesting to read while eating them. With more than 90 New York food pros weighing in with their favorite recipes, each entry starts off by covering a chef’s background and current place of employ. The result is a culinary who’s who for the hungry New Yorker. Manhattan eateries get the lion’s share of attention, though there is also a healthy serving from Tang’s home turf of Brooklyn.
"While the recipes make it a worthwhile edition to your cookbook collection, the tone and selections make it fun—no matter what you’re in the mood for."
"Can’t get to Manhattan? Join journalists Reistad-Long and Tang for recipes from New York City chefs. Artie’s Moshe Dayan Hero from Artie’s Deli, Delmonico’s Classic New York Cheesesteak, and Banana Pudding Sandwich with Chocolate Ganache from Sugar Sweet Sunshine are just a few examples. There is also a rating system for preparation with sections “Difficulty,” “Packable,” “Healthful,” and “Make Ahead.” This chef-centric book includes their photos and websites. Gourmet sandwiches guaranteed to put anyone in a New York state of mind. Recommended."
"Not able to munch your way through the Big Apple? Bring the greatest sammies from the best chefs and restaurants around the city to your doorstep. You’ve got 99 recipes (smoked brisket with cheese and smoked chili jam, grilled hanger steak and mint pesto), and a kitchen disaster ain’t one."
"The Big New York Sandwich Book is a tasty collection of more than 99 sandwich recipes from a "who's who" of talented chefs--including Dan Barber, Daniel Boulud, Jean-Georges Vongherichten, Mario Batali, and others from favorite New York City hot spots."
